When he’s not filling in for Jason Pierre-Paul as a wrestler for TNA, Brandon Jacobs likes to earn his living as a running back for the Super Bowl champion Giants. Though he’s supposed to make $4.9 million in 2012, the last year of his contract, the Giants have made it known they’d like to pay him less.
And while he has said he would take a cut in pay, Jacobs -- who restructured his deal last August -- there’s only so far he’s willing to go.

Jacobs is scheduled to earn $4.4 million in base salary with a roster bonus due to him March 17, and the Post theorizes that if he and the team can’t agree to a restructure, the Giants might cut him in order to save the $500,000 bonus. Plus, you have to remember that Jacobs doesn’t always have the best attitude when it comes to his playing time or talking with his critics, and coming off the worst statistical season since 2006, Jacobs might have to settle for making far less money with the Giants or for leaving the team altogether.
For now, Jacobs isn’t sure of his future plans.
“I have no idea,” he said. “I don’t know what they’re thinking. I want to be here. If not, there are 31 other teams out there.
“As far as I’m concerned I got another year left on my contract. I don’t know why I’m sitting here saying all this stuff. If they want it to work out it’s going to work out. If they don’t want it to work out, it’s not going to work out. That’s all I can say.”
And if it doesn’t work out with the Giants and he has to go play somewhere else, Jacobs can take solace in the fact that he still, we assume, has his “fast-ass car.”
